Maple bar, best bar none?

While Sarah Palin waits around for POTUS to call her about how to handle to BP disaster, she may want to turn her attention to the use of the word “retarded” in Washington. Granted it’s Washington State, not Washington DC, but it’s also a little closer to her home in Wasilla.

TMZ reports that Seattle Seahawks rookie Golden Tate and a pal burst into a Top Pot Handforged Doughnut shop, grabbed the clerks keys and supply of maple bars. According to the woman who called 911 Tate was acting:

drunk…retarded

Tate later returned with the woman’s keys and police issued a trespass warning. Tate said the maple bars were

irresistible

Couldn’t Tate have waited until practice? Top Pot is the official coffee and doughnut partner of Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks.
